Humminbird’s Alabama growth project will add 77 jobs in Eufaula

A sign-on bonus is offered for all new positions. Interested candidates can apply by sending a resume and cover letter to [email protected] or by filling out an application at the Alabama State Employment Service located on State Docks Road in Eufaula.

“It’s always significant when a company that makes first-class products like Humminbird chooses to expand its Alabama operations because that shows real confidence in the workforce and in the operation’s future success,” said Greg Canfield, Secretary of the Alabama Department of Commerce.

“This growth represents an exciting new chapter for Humminbird in Eufaula.”

GROWTH PLANS

Additionally, the company is investing in the multimillion-dollar expansion of its Eufaula facility to include a 27,400 square-foot growth project slated to start this fall. The expansion will increase the facility’s production and assembly areas by more than 25 percent, and the investment will also include significant purchases of new capital equipment.

This expansion project follows a 17,000-square-foot addition, which increased the facility’s warehouse space by 40 percent, that was completed in May 2021.

“Humminbird and Johnson Outdoors Marine Electronics, Inc. have been a great partner in Eufaula for over 50 years. They are pioneers in the fishing electronics industry and continue to set a very high bar for the industry today,” said Philip Clayton, director of economic development at the Eufaula Barbour County Chamber of Commerce.

“We are always very proud to call Eufaula home of Humminbird depth finders.  Humminbird’s innovative products keep winning major tournaments, and this latest expansion will increase production capacity to meet growing market demands,” he added. “Just as important, they will add another 77 new, well-paying jobs to our community.”

Humminbird, founded in 1971 and now part of Racine, Wisconsin-based Johnson Outdoors, produces marine electronics products including fish finders, multifunction displays, autopilots, ice flashers, and premium cartography products.
